5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 12 Dec 2012

Difficult to get excited about a mixing bowl but this one is a generous size, with a non slip base and I have used the non splatter lid several times and it actually works !! I would recommend this if you do baking or make items such as batters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality, 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Real quality cards with a religious theme. All are sourced from real paintings or icons and the card shapes are varied and interesting. Not cheap but for a special friend, well worth the extra. These cards are made to stand rather than be hung as each one had a special shape which needs to be displayed.

Effective cards as they seem to be from a photograph but have an instant appeal for colour and simplicity. I thought they were good value.

These are beautiful, simple cards which would appeal to mot people. The quality is excellent and the red is a striking contrast to the uncluttered design.

5.0 out of 5 stars Retro design with a fun element, 12 Dec 2012

This is for a present and I think it fits the bill well for price and as an unusual gift (for someone who enjoys working in their shed.)
Delivery was prompt and the item bought with the matching mug was packed very well indeed.The quality was good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book for knitters and fairy lovers !!, 23 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knitted Fairies (Hardcover)
I love this book and have already made two fairies. They are simple to make and easily adaptable to your own wool colours and choice and even to your own designs. I am an average knitter but have found the projects fun and easy. The only more difficult part is getting the faces right (have had a few voodoo doll look-a-like near misses !) but getting there with practice.
The illustrations are good and inspirational. I would recommend this book for making the fairies as gifts or to keep. They are not at all twee and would appeal to all ages, depending on your approach. For example,Punk type fairies are a possibility based on the 'Cobweb, the dark fairy' idea.


Liar! Liar! Pants on Fire!
Liar! Liar! Pants on Fire!
by Jan Payne
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 6.37

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, fascinating book, 19 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for a seven year old who loved it .. It is a great way to learn interesting and surprising facts and appeals to the young sense of humour, sense of fun and thirst for facts, particularly those which are amazing ! The reader has to choose a true or false answer and then finds out whether it is correct or not. Here is a little taster 'A woodlouse can drink through its bottom? True or False?'
Answer TRUE -if they are really thirsty they can hoover up a drink through uropod tubes under their tails !!!! Now, did you know that ?
You may not need to know it, but what fun !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something a little different, 12 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very good book for any level of knitter. There are lots of different projects, mainly aimed at the younger market as they are quite trendy.They are wraps, cowls etc but with a modern edge. I really like the book and have successfully made two items already. I am glad I bought it but was not too pleased about the fact that there are a couple of attractive photos of garments but there are no details or patterns for these in the book! Also some of the wools suggested are probably American. However, it is a very useful book and I have enjoyed using it. It is attractively laid out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite chunky, 24 April 2011

This bracelet is good value and attractive. It is quite chunky so not a thin bracelet to be layered with others but modern and fun !The service from the suppliers was excellent.


Toast: The Story of a Boy's Hunger
Toast: The Story of a Boy's Hunger
by Nigel Slater
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.14

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating book, 14 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this book. The way it is written is very easy to read and gives an insight into the author's childhood and for people born around the same era, may well trigger reminiscences of their own childhood-it did for me !! The language is at times quite strong and there are several sexual references, particularly as he matures into adulthood but these not out of keeping with his story. If you saw the dramatic representation on the television,and enjoyed it, this is for you . Nigel's actual upbringing is not entirely as the TV depicted it, however. I would recommend this book- it is at times quite inspirational.
